Today was my father’s 70th birthday.
A couple of months ago I thought perhaps I could be there for the celebration, but then the second wave hit us in Europe and I decided to stay.
Luckily we’re in an age of technology and I could phone and video call into the party at various times throughout the day.
I also had the privilege of compiling a very special present for my dad: family and friends all shared a message to my dad, telling a story of a shared memory and personal well wishes. It was incredible to see how many lives he had touched, and what a positive and lasting impression he made on everyone he’s met so far.
I am so happy to have him in my life as advisor, role model, cheerleader and friend to this day.
Be kind. Stay safe.
